  •  no matter what maig and brady say, small arms (1+ / 0-)

    manufacturers and the corresponding ammunition manufacturers are tiny compared to companies like Lockheed and Raytheon and such that make high tech weaponry like the LRAD....

    So when it comes to budgeting, the companies that spend the bucks lobbying, the lockheeds and Raytheons of the world stomp all over the small arms manufacturers...

    Plus it's America, even in basic crowd control we want some fancy gadget that does the job..... old fashioned community policing is just so boring......

    In my world there would still be a dept Armorer reloading the practice rounds for the officers so they felt and hit just like the carry ammo but at a fifth or less of the cost....

    Then the duty gun is loaded with factory ammunition for the actual shifts...

    Plus pay the officers at least 3 hours a week to practice, if they want to shoot more great,  supply the ammo,  but only pay for 3 or so......
